Henrike Fitschen is a signature PhD candidate at the University of Twente, working together with the Department of Technology Management & Supply and the Department of Educational Science.
She investigates how (negotiation) skills education and teaching methods can be improved with novel high-tech teaching approaches which are possible through sensing technology, recordings and reflection processes to provide students and professionals from different disciplines with professional competencies. In doing so she aims to gain a more comprehensive understanding of non-verbal behaviours and the interaction process of students and practitioners. The interdisciplinary project involves high-tech technology from the BMS lab.
Henrike is teaching students at the Negotiation Project Twente (NPT) how they could get more of what they want by selecting the best strategy within any given circumstance, being able to make decisions based on a proper strategy as well as being able to shift to a different strategy in the course of events. Students also learn to work in a culturally diverse work environment and across diverse (professional) backgrounds.
